Parent Email Registration
By registering to receive class email alerts, parents can keep up to date on announcements, upcoming events, homework assignments, and other class information on any schedule they prefer (e.g., daily, 2x/week, weekly), or only when relevant new content is added.
Just as adults dress appropriately for work, proper attire for students is more conducive to a positive educational experience. We feel it necessary to provide specific guidelines for students to follow and parents to support. Middletown Elementary’s dress code is designed to do the following:
- Make certain all students are comfortable, safe, and ready to learn
- Teach students the value of dressing appropriately for different occasions
- Help students develop a sense of pride in their appearance
- Enable students to participate in all activities that they may encounter throughout the day
- Reduce distractions in the classroom for all students
To accomplish this, the following dress code rules apply:
Hats - Hats/hoodies are not to be worn in the school building unless a special Hat Day is declared.
- No heels
- No sandals/flip flops/open-toed shoes
- No Heely-type shoes (shoes that have wheels in the soles)
** On physical education (PE) instruction days, athletic shoes must be worn.
- Shorts, skirts, and skorts must be fingertip length
- Pants must be worn at the waist
- No underwear is to be exposed
- All leggings must be worn under a skirt or dress
- No bare shoulders
- No low cut arm holes
- Midriffs must not be exposed
- No inappropriate messages or images are to be displayed on any clothing
** Hoodies, light jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts are acceptable for indoor wear.
- Jewelry/makeup for all students is strongly discouraged.
- If jewelry/makeup/headbands are worn, and it is deemed unsafe or interferes in any way with classroom or school instruction, school personnel will ask a student to remove it.
The above items are general guidelines, but not an exhaustive list of inappropriate clothing. Therefore, administrators are the final decision making authority in the enforcement and interpretation of the dress code.
